Text for Tots | Kids Writing Workshop
This workshop will be Monday, Oct. 11 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Lavender’s Bleu Literacy Market (8210 S Harvard Ave.
Writing has been proven to not only improve a child’s critical thinking and communication skills, but also help them organize their thoughts and channel their emotions. Give your child the chance to engage with words in an entirely new way. In this workshop for elementary school students, your child will have the opportunity to tap into their senses to craft their own story. We will help them think like a writer and see how fun storytelling can be.
Children will listen to a writing lesson, have the opportunity to work independently on their work, and then be presented with the chance to share their stories in front of the class.
Scholarships are available for those with financial need. Apply here.
About the instructor
Saira Nadeem graduated from the University of Houston with a MFA in Fiction in 2019. Shortly afterwards, she gave birth to her first son – who looks like his father from Kentucky, but carries his Pakistani grandfather’s name. Her life has been a true testament to living between two different worlds and she shares many of these raw experiences through her stories.
Before committing herself to writing, Saira taught undergraduate students how to sell at the #1 sales program in the nation. She has a knack for editing resumes and helping people land their dream jobs.
Saira comes from a line of women that disobeyed the rules that were set for them and did not regret it. Because of this, her mission is to make a positive impact in the South Asian community by sparking conversation around cultural issues that disproportionately affect young girls.
